GL1200 Electrics Bag
GL1200 Electronics Bag
Someplace along the line I found an old oil bath filter from some sort of machinery that looked really cool. It was pretty beat up and full of ancient oil sludge. I knew I wanted to use it on a bike at some point and it became the perfect candidate for an electronics “bag” for the GL1200. The first order of business was to clean out all the grime. I used a torch and cut out all the internal elements. I could have soaked the remaining canister in some sort of solvent but decided to burn it out instead. Fire is always more fun.
Once I had everything cleaned out, I cut off the open end, sandblasted the entire thing, and then welded on a pipe cap to finish of that end of the assembly.
I was going to put in a slide in/out divider to mount some of the electronic parts too but it turned out it was more functional just to slide everything in without it.
